My '74 260z

Alas it's for sale

10% off for pbn-ers lol (only if a dodgy is placed on the car after purchase)

http://bellingham.craigslist.org/cto/1014127270.html

There are too many plans to list for the thing. First will be redoing the suspension with shorter springs, new shocks and new bushings all around. I am also going to dynamat it and put some black carpet in (keeping the vynal) The tranny is going so eventually I will put in an import (RB20DET?) or a domestic V8, all hail Hybridz.org. Other things on my list include full exhaust, further detailing with emblems (painting existing), painting the louvers, brighter headlights, front air dam and rear BSA spoiler, new wheels and tires, automatic antenna, some speakers (not just one stock one lol).

How it started.

A $800 barn find will become something much more:

Before:




Bringing it to the shop:





After (I installed a CD player too):

Amazing what some paint can do, huh?
Whoever painted your car did the grille too
Where did you get it done and how much?

Let me know if your tranny takes a dump on you before you're ready to swap. I have four of them

I also have a steering wheel that will match your shift knob if you want to go that route. I'll let whatever you need go for cheap for a fellow pbn and hybridz member

Oh, it's hybridz.org btw

edit: I have that same head unit in my accord. Well, had. I got my windows shot out and still don't have the drivers glass and no one in town has it so I just pulled it.

I wouldn't recommend that painter. There is overspray in a lot of places, I already masked the rear-end and rattle-canned the muffler black. And there are a lot of chips already.

Once I get pics uploaded (it won't work right now for some reason), I have all the bumper spacers and attachments front and rear along with the AC air-box part that goes under the dash.

How much did you pay for paint?
Did you let him know how unsatisfied you were and request a refund/discount?

I know I'm going to be a bastard when someone finally paints my car.
